User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8 When creating a URL file by draging the link anchor from the Address toolbar, Firefox creates a file with no filename, just an extension, in Windows if the <TITLE> tag is not specified in the HTML code of that page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Drag the link anchor from the Address toolbar into a Windows Explorer folder or Desktop 2. The link will contain no filename. Actual Results: A URL file is created with no filename, even if the filename of the originating document is known. Expected Results: The expected result, failing the lookup for the <TITLE> tag in the HTML code, Firefox should use the FQDN name (ie. www.petscii.com.url) if the document is index.html on the root of a website or use filename for the page. Further, if multiple periods are illegal on the filesystem of the client OS, Firefox should use the Domain name (secondary portion) such as 'petscii.url' for index.html, and use the filename without the extension, such as 'index.url'. Creation of files with no filesname is bad practise. Also, multiple attempts from different websites would create files with the same name, asking for overwrite. A test page is available at: http://system7.no-ip.com/test.html showing that FireFox ignores the originating document's filename if the <TITLE> tag is not specified.
